- Fruity, apple flavour are fully engaged in nosing and sligt smoky is definitely relishing. Very nice palate with rich flavour and old bottle character, enjoyable one at this price range for a closed distillery.
- Nice old glenlochy, honey citrus herbs orchard fruits, pepper, there are better glenlochys out there but I yet have to find a disappointing glenlochy
Strong, fruity flavors pour out of the glass: apples, grape, some kiwi, gooseberry. Dried orange peel and a little nutmeg. With some time and air, spicy notes of fennel, subtle notes of nettle tea and anise. Framed by light and light honey.
Dry onset, the dryness remains in the mouth over time. Spicy, nutty with hazelnut and walnut, honey, the fruit is barely noticeable except for subtle grape and strong kiwi and gooseberry.
Long, very spicy and almost peppery. Dry and slightly bitter, no more sweetness here.
That's a nice drop, but a little too tart on the finish. The nose is great, in the mouth it is also convincing. Above average but unfortunately not exceptional.
- Powerfull Glenlochy,
despite the modest ABV, but unfortunately not cheap. If you have 415 EUR to
spare, this bottle could be yours.
nose with mild spices. Apple sauce, gooseberries, mandarin and green banana. A
bit of butter. Nutmeg and ginger. Touch of wood. Dried grass? A salty edge in
the background. Nice nose!
Mildly spicy and a
bit dry on the tongue. But punchy! Nuts and honey join the fray. The fruit is
less outspoken, but the wood all the more so. Hint of caramel and honey.
Liquorice. The oranges return, albeit candied. A hint of smoke. Toasted oak?
Long, sweet but spicy
finish that end is a surprisingly salty note.
- Tasting Notes (by SCOMA) :
Aroma: Campino candies and fresh apple pie. Freshly cut grass aromas with driftwood.
Taste: Initially sweet and salty - toasted wholemeal Keck with a hint of smoke.
